New charges in catalytic converter theft investigation


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Police have connected a Vermont man’s alleged crime of stealing pricey car parts to one that happened in Pittstown.

Around the same time, someone was caught on camera actually stealing catalytic converters from a business in Pittstown.

On Monday, police announced Hodgdon was the man on that camera. He’s now facing three felony charges in addition to the crimes he was charged with in the first arrest.
